San Francisco 49ers’ Michael Crabtree Vows “I’ll Be Back”
The Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree don’t appear to have much in common. That is until Crabtree posted a picture of himself on Instragram as “The Terminator” with the famous phrase “I’ll be back” splashed across the top of the image.
The fifth-year player hopes to be back this season from a torn right Achilles tendon suffered during San Francisco’s first day of OTAs (organized team activities) earlier this week. He underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair the injury.
In 2012, Crabtree recorded career-highs in catches (85), receiving yards (1,105) and touchdowns (9). Crabtree caught a touchdown in the 49ers Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Crabtree’s injury is a tough pill to swallow for the 49ers and quarterback Colin Kapernick. Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams are coming off of torn ACLs suffered near the end of the season and new addition Anquan Boldin will now be asked to do more.
So, when will Crabtree be back?
Head coach Jim Harbaugh said the injury would keep Crabtree out of action for six months, which would put his return around Thanksgiving if all goes to plan.
“His comment to that was, he’s got no choice but to be back. Every day now is a healing day, and that starts today,” Harbaugh said, according to the Morning Sun.
Nevertheless, Crabtree’s injury is a tough break for the defending NFC champs.
